Is this on Beacons' level? I can only hope. I'd settle for Subsume though.

It's more similar to Fade. Post metal + post rock sound with no djent. On first listen I'd say it's almost as good as Fade too.

So far I only have Fade and The Discovery, both are great even with nice atmosphere. but Unending has a great colourful album cover so I might check it out.

Really? Fade is amazing, I would like some more post metal + post rock.

his first release has tons of djent

he really branched out after releasing a string of EPs and experimented with loud/soft dynamics

beacons is his masterwork

I prefer both Fade and Let Yourself be Huge to Beacons, but I know I'm in a minority here.

they’re not really comparable

lybh is a complete 180 from beacons and fade is him experimenting with post-grunge

The new album could end up being my favourite of his, and that is saying a lot given how Beacons, LYBH, and Subsume have been such massive and personal albums for me. It's absolutely incredible.

Could've been cool but Ben doesn't have style when it comes to these electronic drum beats. He could've made a sleek release. Sounds like mainstream pop drums. For me, they really take from what could've been a very engaging album. I think this is a personal gripe though as most seem to enjoy it and find this cohesive. Just doesn't do it for me.

But it sounds good. Although I wish I hadn't seen Animals' complaint about the drums. Cuz yeah.

I'm sure longtime listeners will disagree but I think if you're new to Cloudkicker you need to go straight to Subsume.

And Signal/Noise off the Little Histories EP

If you go to Bandcamp, you should buy it if you can. It's name your price. Support local artists.

ye always give ben a few bucks. After actually making an account on Bandcamp I went back and bought all of his albums just so they'd always be in my library.

finally listened, pretty sweet. might bump to a 4 in time but it feels a little short/underdeveloped, especially for an LP, and just leaves me wanting more

I think the length works fine imo.
